Tearful Pause

By | February 21, 2017

My heart is shredded in pain and grief and with the deepest of sorrow as I learned Sunday of the unexpected death of my beloved son André Alexandre Grosz.

I am making funeral arrangements and travel to the states, so I will be away for at least two weeks.  Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers during this painful time.  Blessings and much gratitude to all who read these words.

    “Comment” est le titre de cet encart mais dans ce cas il n’ya aucun commentaire qui vient à l’esprit en dehors d’une pensée profonde de partage de douleur et de tristesse. Mon coeur est près de vous et puissent mes pensées amicales vous aider un peu à surmonter cette terrible épreuve.
    Je pense à vous…

    I don’t know why I came to this Web site today. It just happened. I lost my brother several years ago, and I have watched my mother sink in the grief. It seems that there is nothing so world altering as losing a child. I am truly sorry for your loss and will include you in my prayers.
